Dora Movie review
Dora is Spirit-Revenge flick that has Nayanthara in the lead. It is very appreciable to see movies choosing women as the lead characters and also actually making them a strong character. Gone are the days where the heroine’s were used only as the romantic pair of the Hero and not for anything else. Dora is a refreshing script by the new-comer Doss Ramasamy. You’d be surprised to know that Dora’s major characters also include haunted car and a Dog.
Thambi Ramaiah plays the father of Nayan in the movie and the father-daughter relationship is shown in an amusing manner. His one-liners and timings aren’t the best but they make you more than snicker. The father-daughter duo is enjoyable and has its own moments. Other characters are not worth mentioning other than the dog and the cop role played by Harish Uthaman.
The whole premise of Dora is refreshing but it fails to make the audience get hooked to it. The only time where Dora manages to make you feel good about the movie is when you see Nayanthara portayed as an actual lead character with proper Mass-bgm moments. Nayanthara’s acting as Pavalakodi is one of the few things that holds the movie together. Its debatable if Thambi Ramaiah’s role was adding to the fun of the movie or taking off the seriousness. He’s done a good job nonetheless.
The first half of the movie is unlike other horror thrillers and rides on the father-daughter relationship. The second half introduces the reason for revenge, but its predictable. Another surprising thing about this movie is Nayan’s own voice used for dubbing, her calm, deep voice adds required depth to the character. Watch this movie if you’re Lady Superstar’s ardent fan. Barely passing this one gets a 2.5 rating.
